For Passengers With Mobility Impairments: (check the appropriate box)
All decks, public areas and tenders are designed to be as accessible as possible for guests with reduced mobility. In addition, there are a number of specially fitted staterooms available on each ship in the fleet. For safety reasons, guests requiring assistance may be requested to travel with a care taker, depending on the specific route. Wheelchairs are available on board our ships, for the use of guests during embarkation and disembarkation only, or in case of emergency. Guests that require constant use of a wheelchair or any other form of support must bring their own equipment with them. It is the responsibility of the guest to check with the relevant producers/suppliers that this equipment is safe to take on board and use on a cruise ship, and to organize both its delivery to the departure terminal in good time for embarkation, and its collection at the end of the cruise.

Service Animal
MSC Cruises welcomes service animals on board its cruise vessels. Suitably trained and certified guide dogs are allowed on board all ships, assuming that they are in a good state of health and possess all necessary documents for entering the foreign countries visited during the cruise. The guest will be informed in advance about the accommodation made for the animal, the facilities available (if required) and the embarking and disembarking procedure. The guest is personally responsible (with the aid of the caretaker if applicable) for the custody, feeding and general care of the animal during the whole stay on board.

Children with Special Needs
 Children with special needs have normal access to all onboard services and facilities. Although the entertainment staff do not offer a childcare service, they are trained to provide a wide range of entertainment aimed specifically at children. All children, including those with special needs, are assigned to a certain children's area depending on their age. If necessary, children or young guests with special needs can be placed with a lower age group (with the agreement of their parents), or they can take part in specific activities, together with their parents if required.

Special Diets
Guests with food intolerances and/or allergies are asked to inform MSC Cruises of their requirements and once on board, to confirm their needs at the Reception – Guest Service and/or with the Maître d’Hôtel. If informed in advance, onboard staff will be happy to assist guests in choosing dishes that do not contain foods or ingredients that could cause an allergic reaction. In addition, for Mediterranean and Northern European routes, MSC Preziosa, MSC Splendida, MSC Fantasia, MSC Magnifica, MSC Musica, MSC Orchestra, MSC Poesia and MSC Divina are all certified by the Italian Coeliac Association (AIC) for the preparation and serving of gluten-free dishes. All ships on all routes carry a limited selection of pre-packaged gluten-free products on board.

Deaf/Hard of Hearing: (check the appropriate box)
MSC Cruises is sensitive to its guests needs and constantly strives to offer the best service in accordance with all ADA standards. MSC Cruises makes available a portable room kit if requested prior to sailing by completing a special needs form for each guest. An auxiliary aid kid will be provided which includes a visual tactile alert system, door knocker, telephone alert, alarm clock and smoke detector to guests who require them. A TTY (teletypewriter) interfaces with the Guest Services Deck which is on-call 24 hours a day. Throughout your MSC Cruise you can tune into a dedicated safety channel where a video is televised, in-room, with a sign language interpreter. Captioning, when available through our service provider, is also offered for in-cabin movies. Upon request, sign language interpreters are available, on all cruises departing from and returning to a U.S. port, for guests who use sign language as their primary means of communication. To ensure interpreting services are available as requested, please provide us with 60 days’ notice before your cruise departure.



       
Pregnancy:
The medical facilities and equipment on board may not be technically adequate to deal with a birth or pregnancy complications. Therefore, for safety reasons, we cannot admit women on board who will have reached or exceeded their twenty-fourth week of pregnancy by the end of the cruise. Regardless of the stage of pregnancy, a doctor should be consulted before sailing on a cruise to evaluate whether the guest is fit to travel
